The Cooper Countryman is powered by a standard 121-hp, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive (FWD). A 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters and all-wheel drive (AWD) are independently available. The Cooper S, Cooper S ALL4, JCW ALL4 Countryman trims utilize turbocharged versions of the same engine. The Cooper S and Cooper S ALL4 achieve 181-hp. The JCW ALL4 Countryman is tuned even further, and achieves 208-hp.
